Description

Division The Division of Clinical Chemistry is carrying out research to elucidate the molecular basis of cardiometabolic disease integrating basic science, clinical medicine and translational approaches.

Duties Cardiometabolic disease substantially contributes to the vast increase in non- communicable diseases observed in recent years. Particularly, atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease represents the main cause for morbidity and mortality worldwide. It is increasingly recognized that functional aspects of HDL are important to confer atherosclerotic risk protection. This project will explore the prospective impact of defined HDL function metrics on cardiometabolic disease development. Specifically, cholesterol efflux as well as the anti- inflammatory and anti-oxidative capacity of HDL will be determined. To achieve this goal, cell culture and biochemical methods are combined with molecular biology and mass spectrometry.

Entry requirements To qualify, the applicant should have a background in biomedical sciences with interest and experience regarding the work with cell culture as well as with basic molecular biology methods. Good knowledge with respect to general laboratory techniques is required as well as a background in aspects of lipid and lipoprotein metabolism and function. Specific prior knowledge in methods to determine HDL function is highly desirable.

We are looking for a highly motivated, structured, enthusiastic and scientifically driven candidate interested in exploring the molecular basis of cardiometabolic disease. The person should exhibit a high degree of independence but on the other hand also value a collaborative approach to science and enjoy working in a team. Good proficiency in English, both oral and written is required.

Application process An application must contain the following documents in English:

  • Curriculum vitae and qualifications, presented in accordance with Karolinska Institutet's qualifications portfolio (https:// ki.se/meritportfolj )
  • A complete list of publications
  • A summary of current work (no more than one page)
  • The application is to be submitted on the Varbi recruitment system.

    The position is temporary for 3 months and to be filled from Oct 1st on.
